As the Air Force Reserve Command focuses on prioritizing strategic depth and accelerating readiness, the Headquarters AFRC Manpower, Personnel and Services Directorate here is going the extra mile to support Reserve units across the country.

Beginning in October, the A1 directorate will have a team available to provide support to the field on all primary unit training assembly weekends. This effort is just one of many transformation initiatives AFRC A1 is implementing to reform the human capital enterprise and further enable ready, resilient Airmen, according to Col. Lisa Craig, AFRC A1 director.

Subject matter experts from throughout the directorate will be available between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eastern time on each primary monthly UTA.

At a minimum, the A1 UTA Support Team will include experts from the following A1 divisions: force development, military personnel programs/policy, readiness, integrated readiness, force integration support, data analysis and systems, plans and integration, and military family member force support.

“The A1 UTA Support Team is a major part of our A1 transformation,” said Craig. “It will allow us to provide more timely support to our units in the field as they generate combat-ready Airmen. “By establishing consistent and reliable UTA support, we will enhance our trusted, responsive partnership with our Reserve Citizen Airmen.”

An updated roster of A1 UTA Support Team offices, phone numbers and names will be published in an A1 message to the field and on the A1 SharePoint page no less than quarterly.

The A1 UTA Support Team will be available on the following weekends in fiscal 2020: Oct. 5 and 6; Nov. 2 and 3; Dec. 7 and 8; Jan. 11 and 12; Feb. 8 and 9; March 7 and 8; April 4 and 5; May 2 and 3; June 6 and 7; July 11 and 12; Aug. 1 and 2; and Sept. 12 and 13.
